but th Page 5: IAF gets first overhauled Sukhoi .The IAFs Base Repair Depot (BRD), Ojhar in Maharashtra has successfully overhauled a Su-30 MKI aircraft. Indigenous overhauling in-house within the IAF, will significantly reduce the time and improve the availability rate of the overall fleet at a time when the service is a facing a drop in its fighter squadron strength, officials said The Su-30MKI procured from Russia and licence manufactured by HAL is the mainstay of reve the IAF's fighter squadron. India has contracted 272 aircraft of which over 240 have beern inducted into service. However their serviceability rate has been an issue of constant concern with availability rates dropping below 50% at one point and has improved to over 60% over the last couple of years. The target is to have fleet availability of over 75% ink h cause As part of the measures, in March 2017, India and Russia had signed two long term supply agreements for the Sukhoi fighter aircraft fleet to address issues of life cycle support and maintenance. These agreements cover about 57,000 spares and components related to the Su-30 aircraft To enable this deal, Russia changed its legislation permitting its companies to enter into direct agreement with foreign companies for long term support agreements.

but th Page 5: Varsities having Ordinance need not follow central rules .The Centre has decided that central universities already having an Ordinance of their own need not adopt the Central Civil Services (CCS) rules. However, new central universities not having an Ordinance have to adopt them. .This comes close on the heels of a UGC letter to all central universities that they should ree adopt the CCS rules, which led to much controversy on the ground that the freedom of faculty members to criticise any government policy would stand in violation of these rules. Criticism of this move on the grounds that it would have blocked even the writing of books or articles critical of government policy was followed by Minister of HRD tweeting that there would be no restriction of speech in DU or JNU at a time when the latter had already adopted the UGC's instruction regarding CCS rules. A senior MHRD official told that since JNU had its own Ordinance, it was not required to impose CCS rules on its faculty. . .The Central Civil Services Conduct Rules say: "No government servant shall make any statement of fact or opinion which has the effect of an adverse criticism of any current or recent policy of the Central government or a State." This aspect of the CCS rules had been interpeted as a gag order by various teachers' associations "

With the domestic availability of sulphuric and phosphoric acids in short supply, fertilizers units are reportedly forced to import them. The rising input cost as a consequence, according to these sources, may trigger adverse implications for farm production in the country. The current problem of the fertilizer industry, according to some industry sources, is to a large extent the result of the closure of the copper smelter factory of Sterlite, a Vedanta Group company, in Thoothukodi . cause pui . With India being the second largest consumer of fertilizers in the world, the impact of the closure on the downstream industries with price rises in acid raw materials will not bode well for the economy. India is also the biggest importer of raw materials required for production of fertilizers, especially for those containing phosphate and potassium The availability of these raw materials in the international market is limited and a surge in domestic demand will push the prices up.
